NMH participates in the Medicare certified Swing Bed program which provides post-acute, extended skilled care services following a three day (at least) acute care admission. This level of nursing and/or physical therapy rehabilitation requires a physician’s order from the NMH active medical staff.
Patients often return to Newman Memorial for an inpatient swing bed stay following orthopedic or general
surgical procedures and they need more time to recover. This allows patients to be close to home and/or loved ones during their rehabilitation process.
